@dlowan,
OK Deb, because you're talking about broadening I'm gonna go to the edges of my blob-like taste.

Koyaanisqatsi - the film and the music together. They just take me somewhere else. It makes feel so isolated and alienated but it's moth to a flame stuff. It makes me accept mortality, even welcome it. I hate sharing it because no-one else seems to get the same thing out of it (lots of 'what's this ****?' comments). It just sends my train of thought off in so many different directions each time I see/hear it - and I get massive eargasms (shivers down spine etc).

I particularly love the intro with the subsonic organ and the chanters but Youtube isn't going to do that justice - so try this sampler:



Forbidden Colours - David Sylvian/Ryuichi Sakamoto. Always makes me want to cry. Has meant many different things to me at different times.




I got a girl in Kalamazoo - Tex Beneke/Glenn Miller Orchestra. Always puts a smile on my face, a bit like 'Singing in the rain' from the Clockwork Orange soundtrack. If only life was a musical.



Kothbiro - Ayoub Ogada. Still shivering while I write this - again so otherworldly, just takes me out this time, this place, this way of thinking, this fate.


Lock It - Falling Joys. Just to boost the up side of this selection. My kind of love song - I really understand what she's saying, and there's no moon spoon june.

I LOVE Koyaanisqatsi, it's my favorite film. Shame the sequal wasn't as good.

@dlowan,
i remember when I was a kid, we had an aborigine painting on a huge piece of cloth hung up on the wall...and of course Banjo Patterson was a favorite...Rolf Harris did a version of Waltzing Matilda that I listened to a lot

Trust you to be my soul sister! The 'trequel' was rubbish too. Have you ever seen/heard Baraka? That's pretty good too, but it's not the super K.
